Hi All
If you want a good book to read, try getting hold of a copy of "Making the most of your Deer" by Dennis Walrod-ISBN 978-0-8117-3162-1
It is american but lots in it of interest including Field Dressing, Butchery, Venison preparation, Tanning plus Tropy prep and crafting etc.
Apart from the fact it is based around White Tail deer, it's a good book and one deer dresses out much the same as another.
I was given it and was a bit sceptical but it really is good and also gives you an idea of the american side of things.
Did you know for instance, that you can't buy wild venison in America. You can shoot a deer and give the meat away but that's it?
Anyway, I think Amazon did it if you are interested
